How exactly do the benefits outweigh the risks with vaccines?

There are stories all over the internet of children suffering with these reactions including many death stories. So if vaccines don't guarantee immunity and openly admit they have the potential to injure and kill, what exactly are the benefits? All the children being injured and killed by vaccines are they just the necessary sacrifices for the greater good? Would you feel that way if it was your child that suffered? I have researched into childhood diseases and most are very benign and have extremely high survival rates so long as your child has a healthy immune system. Why would anyone risk their child's life and overall health with a vaccine injection to only maybe protect them from a disease they most likely won't get and if they do have an almost 100% chance of making a full recovery? What if that shot killed them or injured them for life? Just as a disease can be dangerous so can vaccines, and again they come with no guarantee. But if you choose not to vaccinate then you are guaranteed your child won't suffer from one or more of the many possible adverse reactions. I'd much rather go with the guarantee. What are your thoughts?
